It's the summer of 1968, and thirteen-year-old Lyza Bradley has been given an almost impossible task by her grandfather, who recently passed away. Famous pirate William Kidd buried his treasure in Lyza's New Jersey town four hundred years ago, and Lyza's grandfather left a set of maps and information about the treasure to Lyza. With the help of her best friends, Malcolm and Carolann, Lyza sets out to recover whatever Kidd left behind. But as the Vietnam War reaches its peak abroad, distractions abound. Can Lyza and her friends find the treasure before the summer ends?
